Bombardier Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results

- Consolidated earnings and cash performance(1) exceeded 2016 guidance

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/16/17 -- Bombardier (TSX: BBD.A)(TSX: BBD.B)(OTCQX: BDRBF) today reported its fourth quarter and full year 2016 results. The Company also affirmed its guidance for 2017 and highlighted another quarter of solid performance as it executes its turnaround plan.

"Our turnaround plan is in full motion," said Alain Bellemare, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier Inc. "In 2016, Bombardier delivered on its financial commitments. We met our program milestones and we've positioned the Company to achieve all of the financial goals in our five-year turnaround plan, including being cash flow break-even in 2018."

On a consolidated basis, Bombardier exceeded its 2016 guidance range for EBIT before special items(3); improved its year-over-year cash performance by $778 million; and delivered approximately 200 basis points of margin improvement at its Transportation, Business Aircraft and Aerostructures segments. With the successful refinancing of $1.4 billion of senior notes in the fourth quarter, the Company also successfully completed the de-risking phase of its turnaround plan in 2016, securing the liquidity necessary to fully execute the final two phases of the plan: building earnings and cash flow and de-leveraging its balance sheet.

Further highlighting the Company's progress in the fourth quarter was the successful entry-into-service of the CS300 aircraft with airBaltic, which followed the strong performance of the CS100 aircraft with SWISS since starting commercial operations over six months ago. Bombardier's all-new, class-defining, ultra-long range business jet, the Global 7000, also began flight testing in the fourth quarter and remains on schedule to enter service in the second half of 2018.

"As we begin 2017, we are confident in our strategy, our turnaround plan and in our ability to unleash the full value of the Bombardier portfolio," Bellemare continued. "We remain focused on improving operational efficiency, flawlessly ramping up our new programs and maintaining a disciplined and proactive approach to deliver value to customers and shareholders in any market environment."

For 2017, as per guidance introduced in December 2016, the Company expects to resume revenue growth in the low-single digits, driven by an increase in Transportation revenues and an acceleration of C Series aircraft deliveries. EBIT before special items for 2017 is forecast to increase by 35% at the mid-point of the $530 million to $630 million range, with margins improving across all business segments. Free cash flow usage should continue to improve by up to $300 million, falling in the range of $750 million to $1.0 billion as the Company continues to come down the learning curve on the C Series aircraft.

--  Business Aircraft's 2016 financial performance exceeded guidance on all
    fronts, delivering a total of 163 aircraft, while reaching revenues of
    $5.7 billion and EBIT margins before special items of 6.4%, a 200-basis
    point improvement over the prior year.
--  Financial results for 2016 demonstrated our continued focus on driving
    sustainable margin expansion through increasing production efficiency,
    transforming our cost structure, improving our production agility and
    the enhancement to our pre-owned aircraft business.
--  We also made significant progress on the development of the Global 7000
    and Global 8000 aircraft program, setting the standard for a new
    category of large business jets. We successfully completed, on November
    4, 2016, the maiden flight of the first Global 7000 FTV, dedicated to
    testing basic system functionality and assessing the handling and flying
    qualities of the aircraft. The Global 7000 aircraft is the first and
    only clean-sheet business jet with four living spaces. Engineered with a
    next-generation transonic wing design, the aircraft offers a steep
    approach capability and short field performance, coupled with highly
    efficient engines, the largest cabin in this category and a highly
    advanced cockpit.(5)

--  Commercial aircraft's financial performance for 2016 was marked by the
    production ramp-up and the start of the revenue-generating phase of the
    C Series aircraft program. Revenues and deliveries were in line with
    guidance. The EBIT loss compares favourably relative to guidance,
    stemming from strong execution while ramping up production and cost
    control during the initial months following EIS and supported by the
    reliability of the aircraft in service. Our focus is now on improving
    efficiency while ramping up to full production, continuing to increase
    our order backlog, delivering the C Series aircraft and providing
    customer support.
--  Commercial Aircraft reached a historic milestone in 2016 as it certified
    and brought to market both variants of the C Series aircraft, the first
    all-new clean-sheet designed family of single-aisle aircraft in the 100-
    to 150-seat segment in nearly 30 years. With a total of seven aircraft
    delivered by year end, both the CS100 and CS300 aircraft are delivering
    on their operating cost advantage, superior operating flexibility,
    exceptional performance and range, as well as passenger comfort.
--  During the year, significant orders solidified the C Series aircraft
    program in the 100- to 150-seat category. A total of 129 firm orders and
    80 options were added to the backlog, from Delta Air Lines, Air Canada,
    airBaltic and Air Tanzania, with a combined value of $10.1 billion at
    list prices.
--  During the year, we closed the $1.0-billion equity investment by the
    Government of Quebec (through Investissement Quebec) in return for a
    49.5% equity stake in a newly-created limited partnership, the C Series
    Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), which carries on the operations
    related to our C Series aircraft program and continues to be
    consolidated in our financial results.

--  Our operational transformation is gaining traction. During 2016, the
    EBIT margin before special items of 7.4% exceeded our guidance. Our 2016
    revenues of $7.6 billion are lower than guidance, which is mainly
    attributed to our active project management resulting in the continued
    deferral of certain revenue under long-term contract accounting.
--  Strong order intake of $8.5 billion across all product segments and
    geographic regions led to a book-to-bill ratio of 1.1 for the fiscal
    year and brought the backlog to $30.1 billion at year end.
--  On February 11, 2016, we closed the sale to the CDPQ of a $1.5-billion
    equity investment in convertible shares representing a 30% stake in
    Bombardier Transportation (Investment) UK Limited (BT Holdco), which,
    following the completion of a corporate reorganization, owns essentially
    all of the assets and liabilities of Bombardier's Transportation
    business segment. BT Holdco continues to be controlled by Bombardier
    Inc. and consolidated in its results.

Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "shall", "can", "expect", "estimate", "intend", "anticipate", "plan", "foresee", "believe", "continue", "maintain" or "align", the negative of these terms, variations of them or similar terminology. By their nature, forward-looking statements require management to make assumptions and are subject to important known and unknown risks and uncertainties, which may cause our actual results in future periods to differ materially from forecast results set forth in forward-looking statements. While management considers these assumptions to be reasonable and appropriate based on information currently available, there is risk that they may not be accurate.

Certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, risks associated with general economic conditions, risks associated with our business environment (such as risks associated with the financial condition of the airline industry, business aircraft customers, and the rail industry; trade policy; increased competition; political instability and force majeure), operational risks (such as risks related to developing new products and services; development of new business; the certification and homologation of products and services; fixed-price and fixed-term commitments and production and project execution; pressures on cash flows based on project-cycle fluctuations and seasonality; our ability to successfully implement and execute our strategy and transformation plan; doing business with partners; product performance warranty and casualty claim losses; regulatory and legal proceedings; the environment; dependence on certain customers and suppliers; human resources; reliance on information systems; reliance on and protection of intellectual property rights; and adequacy of insurance coverage), financing risks (such as risks related to liquidity and access to capital markets; retirement benefit plan risk; exposure to credit risk; substantial existing debt and interest payment requirements; certain restrictive debt covenants and minimum cash levels; financing support provided for the benefit of certain customers; and reliance on government support), market risks (such as risks related to foreign currency fluctuations; changing interest rates; decreases in residual values; increases in commodity prices; and inflation rate fluctuations). For more details, see the Risks and uncertainties section in Other in the Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) of the Corporation's financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. For additional information with respect to the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements made in this press release, refer to the Guidance and forward-looking statements sections in Overview, Business Aircraft, Commercial Aircraft, Aerostructures and Engineering Services, and Transportation in the MD&A of the Corporation's financial report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.

Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors that may affect future growth, results and performance is not exhaustive and undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements set forth herein reflect management's expectations as at the date of this press release and are subject to change after such date. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, the Corporation expressly disclaims any intention, and assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Microsoft Azure Container Services can be used for container deployment in a variety of ways including support for Orchestrators like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos. However, the abstraction for app development that support application self-healing, scaling and so on may not be at the right level. Helm and Draft makes this a lot easier. In this primarily demo-driven session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, a Cloud Solutions Architect/Evangelist at Microsoft, wi...
Containers are rapidly finding their way into enterprise data centers, but change is difficult. How do enterprises transform their architecture with technologies like containers without losing the reliable components of their current solutions?

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
